I have wanted to go to Santiago for many many years & staying at the Parador was an essential part of the dream. It was better than I imagined. The location is of course superb. The building is historically important in its own right & we found the chapel & its carvings, the small gardens & fountains all beautiful. But...

This is one of the best hotels I've ever stayed. If you like history this is a must !! This hotel use to be a hospital for the peregrinos visiting Santiago 500 years ago . The rooms are great and with those thick stone walls built so many centuries ago... your peace and quiet is guaranteed. Try to walk around...

I never tend to get overly excited about hotels, I am definitively a member of the "they are just a bed for the night" club. However, for the Parador Dos Reis Catolicos, I'll gladly make an exception. We had arrived from Madrid quite early on a Saturday morning, I knew we would not be able to check in immediately, but...

This is the 4th Parador we have stayed in this trip, and the best. The building is simply stunning and the staff are lovely. It is perfectly placed, the bathroom is unbeatable, the views wonderful and sheets and bed excellent. Overall we think Paradors over good value in wonderful buildings.

While we didn't actually stay here, we visited and wandered through the hotel as much as we could. I have stayed in many paradors in Spain, and this has to be one of the best. The lobby is furnished with beautiful antique furniture to go with the age of the building. You cannot believe the architecture!

A beautiful historic building just next to the cathedral. Comfort, food and service excellent. A relaxing and interesting location in which to spend a few days. We very much look forward to returning.

This hotel is special and a very welcome retreat after walking the Camino de Santiago. The front desk staff is very accommodating. The restaurant on the second floor has an amazing breakfast buffet or you can order from the menu. The buffet is good and the food is fresh. They also serve the incredible pudding like hot chocolate!

Excellence at every stage when delivering traditional standards in the modern era, with polite and helpful staff in every part of the Parador, from receptionists, doormen, waiters and waitresses and housekeeping staff, we were made welcom and comfortable.

Wow what a hotel. From the room to the reception every part of this place just feels(and is full of history). Apart from walking around the hotel part of this building you must take the time to explore every corner. Will definitely be staying here again.
